Re: Percentile Question
This is just my experience...I have 7 kids. All were born big..smallest was 8 lbs 5 oz and biggest was 10 lbs 14 oz. All stayed pretty big thru the first year, consistently near the top of the chart percentile wise. But all semed to stop at a year and grow slooow after that! Then they started being in the 25th% or up to the 50th% ...they are all on the smallish side now..dds are average I guess, 16, 15 and 13 and the 15yo is the only one a bit taller, 5'5" I think..but then, I am only 5'4" and dh is 5'9" so it is not unexpected...my 3yo ds is only 30 lbs and 11ds is the scrawniest kid ever and he was the biggest at almost 11 lbs! Anyway....that is just how it worked for us...my last baby will be 1 next week and she was over 9 lbs, and stayed big..but is now 22 lbs and the dc baby I used to watch was way smaller than her and now(at 3 weeks in age behind her) is 23 lbs....she is on the slow down..lol.
